  • Estate park on the banks of the Ribble two miles from Settle
  • Modern facilities
  • Fishing available on site

Gallop forth to Knight Stainforth Caravan & Camping Park if you require a River Ribble base in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, a mere couple of miles from town and on the roomy estate of a manor house which belonged to the Knights Templar... knice.

Said estate is the 45 acres of Knight Stainforth Hall, dating back to pre-Norman times and a nifty base for digging into the dales, the Lake District and the land of All Creatures Great and Small's James Herriot. It's been run by the Maudsley family since 1927 and these days has a modern loo and shower block with free hot showers, a laundry and facilities for dishwashing.

Junior knights (knightettes?) have a ball games area and a playground to charge around, and there's also wireless internet, battery charging and cool block freezing available, a shop with an off-license selling basic supplies, camping accessories and gas refills. Fishing is available on site; pick up a permit in reception.

Make your way to Settle via the A65.

From the north: leave the A65 at the first junction signposted for Settle. Immediately on entering Giggleswick, see the sign for Knight Stainforth on the right hand side of the road. Turn left into Stackhouse Lane and follow the road for 2 miles to the site.

From the south: leave the A65 at the first roundabout signposted for Settle. Continue through Settle, ignoring the turn-off to the right signed Stainforth & Horton. Approximately 250 yards after the bridge take the next right into Stackhouse Lane, signposted for Knight Stainforth. The site is 2 miles along this road.

Important: If you use Google Maps, Route Planners or Sat Navs to help you plan your route please be sure to follow the detailed written directions above, once you leave the A65, to avoid narrow roads (Dog Hill Brow) which are unsuitable for caravans and large vehicles.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Once you've settled a few days strolling, cycling or cantering in the countryside surrounding Knight Stainworth Caravan & Camping Park (the Pennine Way is close by too if you want to walk 267 miles or so), take a few day trips to find out what else is around: caving, waterfalls, the Lake District and market towns are all easily accessible. Prefer something easier? The superb Settle to Carlisle railway can be picked up a couple of miles away.

Cavernous caves and climbing are both for the taking in the area to dig into: White Scar Cave, the longest show cave in England, is nearby at Ingleton and Ingleborough Cave is a little to the east. Tours are available at both.

From Malhamdale, clamber the three famous landmarks, Malham Cove, Malham Tarn and Gordale Scar, or walk around all three in the eight-mile clockwise walk from Malham. (More climbing? The Yorkshire Three Peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside await.)

Another well-trodden trek in the region is the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail, starting and ending at Ingleton on a four-mile rocky road along the River Twiss and past the Pecca, Thornton Force, Beezley Falls, Rival Falls and Snow Falls waterfalls.

Or take things a bit easier and wander around the local market towns of Settle, Skipton and Hawes to pick up local produce to have back at base.
